The Winter Tree of Hope at Standen 

This spring we're looking for volunteers from across the country, to join a lockdown community of crafters to create this year’s Winter Tree of Hope. We want your help to create a bright, bold and colourful art installation, which will be displayed this winter to celebrate creativity, joy and most of all hope for the future.

Things to do with the kids in the South East 

Launching a kite, your dad flinging it hopefully in the air then leaping to avoid the double-back and dive. But when the wind took it and the strings tugged and it was flying, actually flying - do you remember the thrill of it as a child?

Such simple pleasures are among the activities you can get stuck into with the kids at our places across the South East.
